Establishing a Recycling Centre in Mexico



The aim of the program is to encourage community members of Punta Allen, situated within the UNESCO Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, to participate in setting up and running a recycling centre, so it becomes an example to the rest of the region.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The grass roots initiative, Punta Allen Verde, aims to assist the community to start a recycling program within the Biosphere Reserve on the Meso-American Barrier Reef. Community members wish to create and build a recycling centre where the recyclable waste can be temporarily stored once separated.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will build the recycling centre and then set up workshops in town and place containers in the town and school. The reason for the program and separation techniques will be explained. The program will initially focus on children in the village and then women's groups and co -ops.

Potential Long Term Impact

All the plastic, metal and glass collected will be sold, thus gaining revenue to fund and maintain the recycling centre.
